Kids are in the air...with child carriers that is. With the official arrival of spring, what better gift could you give your children or grandchildren than a free ride and some fresh air. So don't be afraid to take advantage of our Spring Child Carrier Sale. Get that baby backpack and get outside and put some miles under your belt. Truly there is no better way to get in shape for hiking, backpacking, or mountaineering than carrying a few extra pounds on your back. I used to load my 25 odd pound 2 year old in a child carrier and climb hills to get in shape for a trip up Mt. Rainier years ago. I made it--barely--but couldn't have done it without my daughter riding on my shoulders.
That was in 2002 and we were partial to Madden Mountaineering's Child Carriers for the security and steadiness of carry even while scrambling up local summits. (We had two of them.) Madden was bought by Sherpani who continues to use the same design and quality in its framed Rumba Baby Carriers. You'll be hard pressed to find a lighter lightweight backpack than Sherpani's Rumba Superlight. And this year Sherpani features some great new colors too.
We also added Kelty FC child carriers to our selection this year. Besides the fact that they are one of the best-selling kid carrier companies; they offer some sharp styling with unique eye catching colors.
